Look Up Kathie 2010 – Emma Louise Pratt

Look Up Kathie 2010

This body of work consisting of small format figurative works on board and a monologue piece I wrote to be performed by Sarah Knight, was drawn from research into the experiences of soldiers and pilots based at Guadalacanal in the Solomons and photographs taken by my grandfather in the last years of the war in the Pacific during his service in the RNZAF at Guadalcanal and in Fiji.

Parallel to this story, one that sits like a ghost in the images of historical events- is that of my grandmother.
